Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: XSL HTML stylesheets: support for DOCTYPE?

/ pilgrim_mark@yahoo.com was heard to say:
| Actually, you can do it in a template, I did it the
| way I described and it worked like a charm (using
| Saxon).  Using <xsl:output> seems much more elegant. 

*Any* time you are tempted to use disable-output-escaping, I think
it's time to consider carefully the design of your stylesheet.
There's no question that it's sometimes necessary, but very, very
rarely, if ever.

| But I just tried it, and while it works for
| single-page XSL transformations, it fails for chunked
| output.  Saxon writes each of the files without a
| <!DOCTYPE> and then outputs the <!DOCTYPE> to stdout. 
| Do you know why?

I think you have to put the doctype-* entities on the saxon:output
